"There are really no words to describe, like, how devastating and -- yeah," Williams said after winning her first-round match at Wimbledon. "I'm completely speechless. It's just -- yeah, I mean, I'm just ..."
At that point, her voice stopped, and the tears started flowing. After a few moments of silence Williams admitted, “Maybe I should go.”
As Radar reported, Williams, 37, is being sued by the estate of Jerome Barson, who, according to police, died 13 days after the athlete drove through a red light in Palm Beach County, Fla., triggering the accident.
Williams was not cited or charged in the crash but the lawsuit still seeks unspecified damages.
On Friday, Williams released a brief statement on Facebook about the crash:
"I am devastated and heartbroken by this accident," Williams wrote. "My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Jerome Barson and I continue to keep them in my thoughts and prayers."
